What are the most common uses for Modular Buildings?

Some of the most common uses for modular structures include school classrooms, church spaces and even locker rooms...


If you are in the market to buy or rent a modular structure you are not alone. Thousands of businesses, schools and churches used modular buildings and portable classrooms to solve temporary and permanent space problems. Some choose to use a modular prefabricated building to house employees or students during construction or after a natural disaster while others choose modular construction in place of traditional building because of the design flexibility, speed and environmentally friendly aspects of prefabricated building.

Modular structure providers have evolved from “trailer and mobile home” companies into very capable general contractors that use sophisticated modular construction processes to deliver functional and modern spaces for various types of occupancy.
